MLS is in a wonderful moment right now, the league is more competitive than ever and the comparison with the top Europe league are starting to appear. Does this mean that is the best team of the MLS? Absolutely no. That does not mean anything, a Premier League team would have to adapt to play in MLS.

Thiery Henry compared Nashville SC to Arsenal, from Player League. He said that it was very difficult against them because their defensive moxie, and fighting spirit remembered him to an old school Premier League team. It will be really hard for Montreal to face them.

Right now, the Impact is on the ninth spot on the Eastern Conference and will face the seventh team. This is a direct match for a playoff spot and a defeat could leave Montreal out of the postseason. Can Henry’s team advance to the playoffs?

The coach said that the main objective is to get the Playoff qualification and with nine points to play, it is possible considering that they have to face Nashville SC, then Orlando City and they end the regular season against DC United, probably the worst team this season.
